Personal Trainers Weight Loss
When looking for a weight loss personal trainer, it’s important to work with someone that understands metabolism and nutrition. All weight loss programs should include resistance training, cardio, and a nutrition plan for best results. You cannot out - exercise a bad diet when training to lose weight thus it is imperative your nutrition plan is on point and works hand-in-hand with your training program. Weight loss still comes down to calories in versus calories out. You must create a caloric deficit to lose weight. Some people tend to underestimate the amount of calories they consume and overestimate the calories they are burning, which unfortunately results in a flawed weight loss program. On the other end of the spectrum, weight loss efforts based on starvation diets and excessive cardio will also set you up for failure. This is why it is important to understand metabolism. Weight loss programs should really be focused on body fat loss while maintaining lean muscle. When calories go too low or excessive cardio is performed, your body may become catabolic and break down muscle tissue for energy. This will lead to a slower metabolism and over time sets the individual up to rapid weight re-gain, and often times leaves them with a higher body fat percentage then when they started.

At Accelerated Fitness our first step in any weight loss program is to estimate the clients BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) and activity level to determine how many calories each client needs daily to maintain their current weight. From there we create a caloric deficit through diet and exercise which is critical for any weight loss training program. Our goal is to maintain lean muscle while losing body fat. We believe that a more balanced approach to nutrition is optimal for a successful weight loss plan. Typically speaking, neither dietary fat nor carbohydrates should be extremely low. Thinking that carbohydrates or dietary fat is the enemy and must be kept very low is a misconception that some dieters and weight loss candidates believe. We use a healthy lifestyle approach that is sustainable long-term for our weight loss clients. With weight loss we believe in cutting calories just enough to see proper progress and making only small adjustments at any given time to prevent plateaus. When drastic measures are taken, muscle can easily be broken down for fuel, and metabolism is reduced causing negative results. This can make future weight loss very difficult and lead to a rebound once a diet ceases. We also teach our clients how to transition from weight loss to maintenance once they have reached their desired goal.
